FMTSO - Vacations


This week's prompt at Friday My Town Shoot Out is Vacation Spots

Where do you love to vacation?
Do you go on vacation to rest and relax?
Or do you keep busy with activities?


My favourite place to vacation is my hometown of Mumbai, India.

Visiting Mumbai is always relaxing and great fun to meet up with my relatives and friends. And it's always busy, busy, busy catching up with them.

Here are some of my favourite Mumbai pictures


Taj Mahal Hotel and the Gateway of India. 


Sunset from Joggers Park. The sunsets in Mumbai are spectacular.


Relaxing at the Otters Club and looking at the palm trees is so therapeutic. I love the palm trees. They are so elegant. 


Rajabai Tower 


It's always fun to eat out in Mumbai. Some of my favourite places to eat are at:

The Copper Chimney - I love the rumali roti and kebabs 

Jewel of India - great ambience and wonderful cuisine.

  3. I love how India is so exotic yet so English. It's a unique combination and I can see how you love it. Great pictures. They really tell a story.

    1. Thanks Barb. That's so true about India being exotic and so English. Some of the most beautiful buildings in Mumbai were all built by the British during their rule in India. The Rajabai tower is one of those.

  6. Great photos. Although I miss my family, I certainly don't want to spend my vacation visiting with them. I consider visiting family separate from my real vacation. Anyhow, one of these days I hope to visit India.

    1. Thanks JarieLyn. I think I'm done with visiting places for the scenery etc. I've been blessed to have travelled to many places around the world. Now it's all about the people for me. I do hope you will visit India someday.

  10. I am wondering where you live that you vacation in Mumbai! For me, I wouldn't like the travel time to get there. My husband has gone there on business. He is not too much of a fan of the air time either!

    1. Hi Rebecca, I live in New Zealand but my hometown is Mumbai. I vacation to visit my relatives and friends. I guess if I was just going on business or as a tourist I would not like the travel time. But to visit people close to my heart and a city I grew up in and love with all my heart, I would make that trip 10 times over and not feel the pain.
